ID:	217055 This picture does his male looking fins justice. He has a little bit of cloudy eye but it's almost gone.

ID:	217056 Sub dominant male. Can't see his fins because he's well sub dominant so doesn't show his fins as much but sometimes the two males have a good hour or so squabble.

The female will develop a orangish tint to her belly when she is sexually mature.

ID:	217316 This is my new female she is so much of I guess I could say better strain? Than my others more pronounced stripes when I got her she had a bright orange belly ready to breed but it hasn't come back since I added her. Males are gaga over her and when I do a water change the two females get very feisty and start fighting and courting with the males.
